What is a Botanical Garden?

The essential element of a botanical garden is the acquisition and dissemination of botanical knowledge. It is not only a landscaped or ornamental garden, although it may be artistic, nor is it an experimental station nor a park with labels on the plants.
Each garden naturally develops its own special field of interests depending on its personnel, location, extent, available funds and the terms of its charter.

The garden society is presently embarking on an ambitious project in conjunction with the University of Northern British Columbia; the development of a premium botanical garden on a +11 hectares site at the entrance to the university. This Sub-Boreal Forest garden will be a showcase for the garden society, the University and the people of the surrounding region. It will provide opportunities for educational, recreational, photographic, research and cultural activities as well as a venue for special celebrations such as weddings.
This garden will include:
• a visitor's centre which will include a classroom, gift shop, botanical library and reception hall for special events,
• various themed ornamental display gardens,
• a First Nations garden developed in conjunction with the local First Nations,
• a feature walkway with overhead arbours and trellises,
• a wetland area with viewing platforms
• an extensive research garden for UNBC staff and students.
It is the intent of the society to develop this garden over a period of years, into a major attraction for our university, our city and our region.
